    NeAT scheme to help vulnerable

    When preparing your argument, you need to establish [a] what is a vulnerable person? [b] what are the needs of vulnerable people? and [c] why it is something about which society should be concerned.

    If you are on the "con" side, then your argument will be that we should not be concerned about vunerable persons in our society.

    You can. You might also argue that "vulnerable people" need to learn how to manage and that "vulnerability" can be encouraged by over-caring.


    The reason for establishing the "pro" arguments is so that you can identify the "con" ones.
